Asian Markets at Close Report on March 22, 2017: Nikkei Falls 2% as "Trump Trade" Doubts Hit Asia Markets:   Ese Erheriene Asian markets dropped Wednesday, led by the Nikkei’s fall of more than 2%, following overnight declines in U.S. financial markets as investors re-evaluated their “Trump trade” optimism. Stocks globally and the U.S. dollar have broadly rallied in the wake of President Donald Trump’s election in November, buoyed by his talk of a tax overhaul and infrastructure investment. However, roadblocks have risen ahead of Thursday’s scheduled vote to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, triggering a market pullback Tuesday in the U.S. that has carried overseas and has investors questioning Trump’s ability to make good on his policy promises. “Market participants are doubtful of whether President Trump is able to deliver his ‘phenomenal’ tax cuts,” said Woon Tian Yong, an investment analyst at Phillip Futures. For some, patience has been wearing thin as his first 100 days in office tick away without detailed policy developments. As such,

Europe & U.S. Stock Markets Closing Reports on March 21, 2017 Europe shares close lower as investors focused on U.S. health care Sam Meredith, Silvia Amaro European markets closed lower on Tuesday afternoon as investors saw the U.S. revamping a health care bill to replace Obamacare. The pan-European STOXX 600 closed 0.53 percent lower mainly driven by health care stocks, which dropped 1.21 percent. This followed the news that Republican members of Congress had prepared their replacement bill for Obamacare. The bill is set to make significant changes to tax credits and impact low-income people. U.S. President Donald Trump urged Republican members to support the bill or they would risk losing votes in 2018. Banking stocks were drawn into the trend after rallying in early deals. Several lenders jostled for position near the top of the benchmark with Deutsche Bank moving higher. This came as the subscription period began for the new shares that form part of the embattled bank's capital increase. Its shares e

Search Engine Land: Google: Hacked Sites Increased 32% in 2016 - March 20, 2017.   Barry Schwartz on March 20, 2017 at 1:11 pm Google published its State of Website Security in 2016 today, reporting that there was a 32 percent increase in the number of hacked sites in 2016 compared to 2015. Google added that it doesn’t expect the trend to slow down any time soon. Google said that these hackers are getting even “more aggressive,” and at the same time more sites are letting their sites and content management systems become out of date, leaving themselves open to more security holes. As an incentive to verify your site with Google Search Console , one data point that is key is that “84% [of] webmasters who do apply for reconsideration are successful in cleaning their sites.” Of course, those that do take the time to verify their sites with Search Console are also more likely to care about their outdated CMS package. Google does try to warn all webmasters that their sites were hacked but said “61% of webmasters who w

Asian Markets at Close Report on March 20, 2017: Asian Stocks Mixed as Investors Mull G20 Headlines   Aza Wee Sile   Asian equities were mixed on Monday as investors mulled headlines out of the G-20 finance ministers meeting in Germany at the weekend and China Development Forum over the next two days. Finance ministers from twenty of the world's biggest economies held a two-day meeting, and warned against competitive devaluations and disorderly FX markets but failed to agree on keeping global trade free and open. "Germany Finance Minister Schauble bemoaned the omission for "resit all forms of protectionism" in the G-20 communique as U.S. Treasury Mnuchin preferred to 'reduce excessive global imbalances...promote greater inclusiveness and fairness,'" said Vishnu Varathan, senior economist at Mizuho Bank, in a Monday note. Down Under, the ASX 200 closed down 0.36 percent or 20.7 points at 5,778.9. Australian retailers were under pressure on Monday, due to fears of Amazon potentially launching its se
